Primary CLIL

Here’s a good webpage from a group of teachers and teacher trainers that have create this site as a way to support CLIL in Primary.

This is how they define themselves…

About Us

An initial needs assessment in five countries identified support for teacher educators working with colleagues developing CLIL-based approaches within the secondary phase but little existing support for those involved in the primary phase. The consortium, comprising members from six institutions concerned with initial teacher education, (see below) has formed to support primary teacher educators in introducing and developing CLIL pedagogies with their student teachers.

The main products include: a profile of a primary CLIL teacher (a development of the European Foreign Language Teacher Profile); an online portfolio (a monitoring/assessment tool) enabling student teachers to record their achievements and areas for development, and the tutor to monitor the student teacher’s progress and identify where support is required , and a series of training packages, on predetermined CLIL areas enabling teacher educators to address a range of primary CLIL issues with student teachers; these will include video footage of student or experienced teachers trialling and exemplifying CLIL strategies within primary classrooms.

Training materials will be produced in each of the five main languages of the consortium (namely Spanish, German, Polish, Italian and English). There is potential to adapt the products for direct use by speakers of other languages.

The impact envisaged for this project is substantial. Teacher educators are ideally placed within their own institutions to influence the teaching practices of several cohorts of student teachers, and therefore subsequent generations of future teachers.
